This is a BIG one!

For Pete's sake. That was a long blogcation, lol. So, let's take this slow and add a little at a time. :) I am at least 5 weeks behind on posting my Project 365 photos, but I'll get them up in time. Today, I'm posting a few and will get the rest of them up here soon. I will, I will, I will! ;)

BUT, first of all, today is reveal day @ Citrus Tree Studio and there's LOTS to share! This month Cindy put together TWO wonderful kits (a full and a mini...although it's not very mini!)! "Easy Rider" features the Rebel line from Glitz and "Zinnia" features the Little Yellow Bicycle Zinnia line. Both of these kits are packed full! You can pick them u here!

I created 4 layouts and 4 cards and still have a LOT of product left!

Easy Rider Kit exclusive except for the Jenni Bowlin alphabet/star stickers (available in Citrus Tree's May "County Fair" kit) and American Crafts Thickers

Easy Rider Kit exclusive with the exception of the 7Gypsies "Journey" stamp, Jenni Bowlin alphabet stickers (link above) & additional white cardstock

Zinnia Kit exclusive with the exception of the chipboard owl (thanks to my friend, Beth)and Prima flower

Combination of Easy Rider and Zinnia Kit

For this card, I sewed together 2 of the Zinnia die-cut papers and to finish the edging I used my hole punch to give it a notebook paper feel...

For this card, I cut the spades from the patterned paper and then hand-formed the flower...

Okay, here's a few of my Project 365 photos that I'm behind on posting. Excuse my rounded corners and the inconsistency, lol. I'm practicing and went overboard on the plane one, lol!!

My pile of Box Tops that I gave to my mom to take to her school...

I was making eggs one morning and to my surprise, I cracked into a double yolk! Isn't that good luck or something? Did I eat twins? Ha!

While driving home on the interstate, I saw this plane. We have an airport really close.

Hubby and I took 2 of our nephews to our favorite pizza place one day. We had so much fun with them! Notice the ginormous balls of bubble gum in their mouths! LOL!

My sister's birthday cookie. Don't ask why it says what it says. It's a loooong, funny story!

Taco salads/tacos at my parent's for Sunday dinner...

We ordered pizza in one night. Yum! I like a little green pepper on mine. ;)

Hubby's brother came over and worked alllll day on replacing/fixing some plumbing in our basement.

*Whew*! Thanks for stickin' with me! :) I'll be back this weekend to post some more of my photos! Have a good one!
